Real Estate Figures

Some people believe that if you bury a statue of St. Joseph on a piece of property, it will sell sooner. When it came time to put my place on the market, I took the St. Joseph from my Nativity scene and buried it near my front door. A few days later a woman made me an offer on the house.

Since she had to sell her home, too, I suggested she enlist the help of the saint as well. After a month of burying the statue all over her lawn, she had no nibbles and, in disgust, put the statue out with the trash.

A week later, she opened her local paper and read: "Town Sells Landfill to Private Developer."
